Swimming Classes for Babies and Young Children in Bangkok

2 kids sitting at the swimming pool

Learning to swim in the early years is one of the most important skills parents can teach their kids, it’s one of the skills that could easily save their lives. Infant and toddler swimming affords numerous benefits that contribute to the positive development of the child, both physically and emotionally. Lucky for us in Bangkok there are some great swim schools that offer interactive parent-child group classes, with a focus on the use of songs, games and water toys, to encourage babies and young children to learn the basics of water safety and become competent, confident swimmers. 

Sadly drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill. It’s important to remember that children who appear water confident are not always competent swimmers.

The first journey our little ones will take within the LITTLE SPLASHERS program, is in our baby swimming classes. One parent or carer who the child trusts, will be in the water with the child. Your little swimmer will begin learning to enjoy the water, before trusting the teacher. Children will learn slowly with games and songs lead by our coach. This will progress until they can grow to the point where they can swim alone to the parent, 3m away. At 3 years old we prefer the child with out mom and dad in the pool, sometimes this can happen a 2.5 yr if the child is very comfortable in the water. This second level in the “Little Splashers” journey is called crab level. If your child is 5 yrs and still super scared of water, they would be placed within this beginner group with other younger children who may have had lessons since the baby swimming class, in order to gain enough confidence to move to the next level.
